Here is a question for the board:

The Braves play 3 at San Diego, and 3 at Milwaukee to open the 2nd half.  Who do we root for?  Do we want Atlanta to beat our wildcard competition because it's going to be tough to make up 6 games in the division, or are we still gunning for the division?

For me, I can't root for the Braves until I know we have no shot at catching them, but realistically, it is probably better for our chances at the WC if they win these games. 
well, we could root for a plague of locusts to descend, but short of that, maybe the best outcome is for a couple of series splits, 3-3 for the Barves, while we take care of business against the Phillies and Os.
